Winner: Fall Giveaway!

Last week, in the spirit of Fall, we had a little poetry contest, giving you a chance to win one of three gift certificates for Fat Quarter Shop! We read all your poems and let me just say, who knew quilters were such poets?! It was a blast seeing all the responses and reading everything you wrote; funny rhymes, haikus, and even odes to your favorite sweater. Thanks to everyone who participated, we had a lot of fun!

And now, without further ado, our randomly selected winners are...

The winner of a $200 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop is:
Fall is near, 
You are such a dear, 
I will make you a quilt, 
For the house we have built.

The winner of a $150 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop is:
Autumn Hayride 
 The wagon was filled to the hilt 
With children wearing pants, dresses and even a kilt, 
They all sat in the middle so the wagon wouldn't tilt 
And to keep warm stayed under the quilt

The winner of a $100 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop is:
Oh boy rhyming is not my thing... 

 Oh the money I have spent 
Created so much guilt 
But if I win 
No guilt, just quilt! 

 Wow that is bad but it rhymes.

Congratulations to our 3 lucky poets! Look for your gift certificates in your email inbox soon! And thanks again to everyone who participated, your poems were great! Happy Fall and happy Friday everyone!

I thought you were going to pick based on creativity - not just random draw. I think many others thought so too or they may not have spent time trying to come up with something fun & creative. A sign of the times I guess....

Congrats to the very lucky winners....

I thought it was based on creativity too! I spent a lot of time trying to be creative. Oh well next time I'll know.

Congrats to the lucky winners!

Congrats to the winners!

For what it's worth, I think you were absolutely right to choose randomly. If it had been subjectively based on 'merit' everyone would have been arguing about that too!!

Did not mean to "argue". I just misinterpreted the game just like the other poster did.
The Fat Quarter Shop is the best and very generous with their prizes and give aways. Congrats to all.

Thank you Kimberly. I was laughing when I submitted my little poem, and thought I didn't have a chance. Glad it was random. And I appreciate everything you do for all the quilters out here. You are extremely generous with all the giveaways you host and sponsor.

Shopping done, GC spent, plus some.

I had to laugh hysterically when I seen my name because I thought oh no, others are going to see how badly I rhyme!! BUT it is worth it. I love your shop! Thanks so very much. Can't wait to shop!!
